In the late 1980's when Joel McIntosh was a classroom teacher in a poor, rural community his principal gave him the task of teaching the gifted students. He was told "you need to build your classroom from the ground up - find the teaching tolls and write a curriculum that will challenge these kids". Not knowing where to start a colleague of his suggested atteding the state's gifted education conference. Rather than hearing only a few presenters at one state conference, why not create a company that offered the best teaching practices and curriculum by authors from around the country and even the world, and so the see for Prufrock Press was planted. Twenty-five years later, Prufrock Press is the a leading publisher supporting the education of gifted and advanced learners. Their line of more than 500 titles offers teachers and parents exciting, research-based ideas for helping gifted, advanced, and special needs learners.

He possessed that rare ability to make connections between seemingly disparate ideas, and to put them together to create something new. Lawrence's respect for teachers and students, and acknowledgment of the empowering role of education, profoundly affected anyone who worked with him—including Stenhouse cofounder and former editorial director, Philippa Stratton. Stenhouse Publishers started in 1993 with two employees in a one-room attic walk-up in York, Maine. That fall we published six titles. Today, more than a dozen employees work in their offices overlooking Monument Square in the heart of Portland, Maine. They now have a catalogue of more than 300 books and videos. Stenhouse recognises and embraces the complexity of teaching and learning. They are devoted to helping teachers inspire deep and creative thinking in their students. Stenhouse products model the collaborative and reflective relationships that foster deep learning and elevate teacher excellence.
